Such a much more light hearted book than the others I'd read lately, also than American Gods (which my brain always tied this book to). Just what I needed. Very fun, very fast.

A good book from author Neil Gaiman. Anansi Boys isn't as dark as American Gods (by the same author) was, but it was a fun read. In the book, the reader follows the point of view of a handful of different characters as their stories converge and make for a great ending. I highly recommend Anansi Boys to anyone who believes in magic and its power to make life go south quick in fun and hilarious ways (assuming your not the one whose life is going south)>

Witziger und weniger dramatisch und weltbewegend als der erste Teil. Wieder schnell gelesen, aber der Witz der Story ist im ersten Teil schon durch, und es ist eher eine Nebenhandlung ohne grosse Konsequenzen. Daher diesmal nur 4/5

I listened to this on tape, and oh my goodness, the narrator couldn't have done a better job!!! He really mastered all of the various accents required - Caribbean, British, USA - he was wonderful. It would be worth the effort just to listen to this narrator!

But, the book was very good, too. Sort of along the idea of American Gods. Very enjoyable.
